The UTA Libraries Special Collections Division has partnered with researchers Kevin Randle, David Rudiak, Simon Schollum, and Jerry Morelock to document and disseminate photographic assets held by the Libraries related to the Roswell UFO incident of 1947. At the time, the object in question, said to be a weather balloon, was flown to the Fort Worth Army Air Field where reporters saw and photographed the material.

The UTA Libraries currently holds photographs and negatives from the incident as part of the large Fort Worth Star-Telegram collection that chronicles the history of Fort Worth and West Texas.
